Book Description

18 Nov 2011

Cassie settled down too young, marrying her first serious boyfriend. Now, ten years later, she is betrayed and broken. With her marriage in tatters and no career or home of her own, she needs to work out where she belongs in the world and who she really is.

So begins a year-long trial as Cassie leaves her sheltered life in rural Scotland to stay with each of her best friends in the most glamorous cities in the world: New York, Paris and London. Exchanging grouse moor and mousy hair for low-carb diets and high-end highlights, Cassie tries on each city for size as she attempts to track down the life she was supposed to have been leading, and with it, the man who was supposed to love her all along.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating and colourful! 26 Nov 2011
Format:Paperback
I have to admit, when I picked this up, I was expecting a generic 'easy read' of the regular woman's fiction genre, but boy - was I taken for a pleasant ride with this one! Karen Swan has presented us with every woman's secret dream - to move away to a foreign city and 'recreate' yourself in a bid to find who you really are - and that's just what Cassie does in Christmas At Tiffanys. Having found out that her long-term marraige was not what she thought it was, she ups from the wilds of countryside to magical New York, romantic Paris and bustling London, each time to stay with one of her three closest friends. There, each take their turns to remake her, involve her in their very different worlds, and, show her just how adaptable she really is.

This was no easy read; there were twists I never imagined coming. Descriptions of places I haven't been to, but now, after reading this, know will stick in my mind whenever I do go to these cities - she reminded me very much of Belinda Jones in the way the sheer passion of sharing these cities with the reader shone out, especially the captivating lesser-known areas, not so much tourists spots.

Love, laughter, sorrow, death, tears, happiness, friendship, desire - are but a snippet of the emotions and experiences ranging through Christmas at Tiffanys. Four best friends; each so very different and yet so very close. An estranged husband, too-attractive boyfriend, intriuging new friendhips and enigmatic blast from the past make Christmas at Tiffanys definitely one for the must reads list this year - although don't be fooled, not much of the book is actually set at Christmas time.

Five stars leaves me longing for another book like this from Karen Swan - let's hope it doesn't take too long to deliver!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not so festive but still brilliant! 14 Nov 2011
By Chloe S "Chick Lit Chloe" TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
I jumped at the chance to read this book because let's face it - I'm a sucker for a Christmas book. However, now I've finished the book, I have to say I felt a little robbed because it wasn't really a festive book at all, BUT it was a really enjoyable story, perhaps just marketed a little wrongly! I found Karen Swan's writing very easy to read and despite it being a fairly long book, I found it very consuming and I really loved the cast of characters within. I think my favourite thing about this book is that you really don't know how its all going to end up, there are clues throughout but nothing to spoil it for the reader, and I loved that!

The book is based on Cassie, and the mess that is her life. Cassie's marriage has recently fallen apart following a shocking revelation about her marriage to Gil, but her 3 girl friends are ready to step up to the plate and help her out, by Cassie spending 4 months with each of them at 3 "exotic" locations... well they are for the girl who has never left Scotland anyway! I felt really sorry for Cassie, her life has been turned upside down by her husband, and she is totally lost. She was very likeable and I think she works well as a main character for the book. First up is New York, and her friend Kelly. I really liked Kelly, she was a fun girl who worked hard and played hard, and it made a real lifestyle change for Cassie and a good way to kick start the book. New York seems to be an ever popular location in chick lit these days, but I felt Swan did a good job in portraying the city, especially through the eyes of the naive Cassie, who hasn't got a clue about places like this!

I found the other characters to be good, especially Suzy, who lives in London. Her life is perhaps the most realistic of the three friends to be honest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect romantic read 27 Dec 2013
By Shazjera TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I can't believe I've had this so long on my Kindle ...

Cassie, living rurally in Scotland, is celebrating 10 years of marriage. We get to know the background of Cassie's friendship with Kelly (living in NY), Anouk (living in Paris) and Suzy (in London). Cassie overhears a telephone conversation and is subsequently whisked away on a plane with Kelly. Cassie is in no state to make any decisions for herself and so her friends decide that she will spend four months with each of them. And so Cassie's journey begins to discover who she really is and what she wants from life instead of living in husband Gil's shadow.

In NY and Paris Cassie lives the life of her friends, including an image change along with the lifestyle. In both places she meets someone special (although not both in a romantic way). She also finds out something about one of her friends that causes a rift between the four friends.

Loved the lists that Suzy's brother Henry gives to Cassie to complete in each city! Oh and the seeds too ... Venice was very interesting!

I found myself becoming really involved in this story. In fact I found myself having a sarcastic conversation with Selena one morning while I was getting ready for work! Despite working out the `one' for Cassie, I thought the author very skilfully wove this into the story and I loved the intrigue.

I loved being in each city, the people that Cassie met and the experiences that she had. I cringed at her huge mistake and wanted to smack Luke in the face about the photos.

There was as moment of uncertainty near the end... but I was glad it was the ending I predicted and perfect!
